11 Design Questions for Tiffany Brooks of HGTV’s ‘$50K Three Ways’

On the new HGTV series $50K Three Ways, interior designer Tiffany Brooks helps homeowners decide on a renovation while staying within their budget.

UPTOWN caught up with Brooks, who is also an HGTV Star winner and designer for HGTV Smart Home, to learn more about $50K Three Ways, her experience competing on Rock the Block with fellow designer David Bromstad, interior trends on her radar, and the number one mistake homeowners make when renovating. Her husband Dante Brooks makes an appearance in the first episode of $50K Three Ways, so she also gives advice for working with a loved one. In addition, Brooks makes a case for painting ceilings a color instead of drab white, and since some of us HGTV fans are renters, she also provides suggestions for updating a space you don’t own.

@amermedicalassn President Susan R. Bailey, M.D. has released a statement on police brutality in Chicago following the recent release of bodycam video showing a Chicago police officer fatally shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo less than a second after the boy appeared to drop a handgun, turn toward the officer, and begin raising his hands:

“In video footage released yesterday, Chicago and the world again see a child’s life cut tragically short at the hands of police. This is unacceptable. While much is unknown about the circumstances that led to Adam Toledo -- a 13-year-old Latino youth -- being killed, we see that all too often when it comes to Black and Brown bodies there is little margin for error.

“Chicago is the AMA’s hometown and we know firsthand that our city is in urgent need of police reform. We strongly urge the Chicago Police Department and other policymakers to make the changes necessary to eliminate the excessive use of force by law enforcement and end racial and discriminatory profiling by police. We urge reforms and approaches that promote trauma-informed, community-based safety practices, among other measures, to prevent the senseless killing of innocent children. Everyone’s life is valuable and we deserve better in this city and this country.

“Police brutality is a manifestation of structural racism. Black, Brown, Indigenous and even Asian people continue to face significant harms through violence perpetuated by police. This leads to detrimental public health consequences in our entire society, with communities of color harmed most by witnessing and experiencing this police brutality. Every additional incident continues to add onto the inter-generational trauma. Adam Toledo’s death must be a catalyst to dismantle structural racism in our city and our society.”

Daunte Wright’s parents, Aubrey and Katie Wright, spoke exclusively with GMA today after white police officer Kim Potter fatally shot their 20-year-old son in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis on April 11.

The story is that Potter “accidentally” shot Daunte Wright and intended to deploy her Taser instead of her handgun.

“I lost my son, he’s never coming back,” Aubrey Wright told Robin Roberts. He added, “I can’t accept that — a mistake, that doesn’t even sound right. This officer has been on the force for 26 years. I can’t accept that.”

Katie Wright revealed that Daunte Wright had called her during the traffic stop that preceded the fatal shooting. “I know my son was scared,” she said during the GMA interview. “He’s afraid of the police, and I just seen and heard the fear in his voice. But I don’t know why and it should have never escalated the way it did.”

Once again, an American police officer used the most force possible when dealing with a Black person.
